The last race in the Backyard Ultra 'South Africa' Series will be held at Taroko Trail Park in Modderfontein Nature Reserve. This 265 hectare private open space is the second-largest private park in Gauteng and includes a number of dams, grasslands and hills. Experience the best trails nature has to offer on your doorstep at Taroko Trail Park.


Runners will be treated to a stunning course along dams, through forest and grasslands. The Highveld weather conditions in October are perfectly suited for runners who are looking for cooler temperatures to push their limits.

The route is also supporter and spectator friendly as the majority of the route can be seen from the Start / Finish area. The Start / Finish area is situated right next to an open field which allows athletes to be able to set up their gazebos / tents close at hand. The Fourways Farmers Market will also be open if your supporters need a little break and some entertainment.

Expect a fantastic final showdown at Race #5 of the Backyard Ultra 'South Africa' Series at Taroko Trails.
